I wrote a Novel, now what?

Dec 1, 2009 | Nanowrimo, Novels, The Art of...., Writing | 2 comments

15446_187277182310_640687310_2785152_4967170_nThere’s a page that shows up in about a day on the Nanowrimo, that says ‘I wrote a novel, now what’.  I’d suggest checking that one out in conjunction with this one, because this is my personal process for the next 11 months.
In 10 months time, I start planning my next Nanowrimo – I’ll have graduated and will hopefully either be in a position to write full time, or write part time, work out of the house part time, or possibly working full time, back to writing as a hobby.  I’m not entirely sure what the next ten months hold for me, but I do know that in March, I’m editing my three Nanowrimo novels from this year.
And in July, I’m doing something special.  It’s actually a year round project, but is specifically geared up to be ‘done’ along with other people in July.  So, I’m delighted to announce that on January 1st, we launch the National Novel Query month site!  We’ll be running in July, with year round posts, tips, tricks, prep work.  So, we hope you’ll join us.

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...

The two pink lines we didn’t want… #mondayblogs #rungirlrun

Just a quick one this week, as I have had a positive LFT for covid this morning. Lft 2 pink lines #covidtest #UK What this means in all practical terms is I'm more grateful than ever for my vaccines and, in part due to something my partner said this week, I've pitched...

A 2022 plan in the making… #mondayblogs #backlist #kailarks #rungirlrun

So I did my retrospective. And I don't do resolutions, mostly because if I did, I'd get into even more trouble than I'm in already. But, I do sorta, do plans for the year ahead.I've split them into personal and professional, then split appropriately from there. That...
